We believe that finding the right college fit doesn't happen in a day and shouldn't be based solely on a college ranking list. We primarily work with families through our comprehensive package where we serve as your advisor, guide and mentor through the entire college search and application process.


We also offer hourly consultations, essay review and summer application and essay workshops to ensure your application stands out from the crowd.

We work with clients across the United States and abroad. 

Comprehensive Package: 10th and 11th Grade Students

We work one-on-one with families to provide unparalleled assistance with each step of the college search and application process—from curricular and activities planning, formulating a tailored college list, brainstorming and editing essays and making that all-important final decision—we're here to help each step of the way. We limit the number of students with whom we work, and are typically full by the winter of junior year. 

The package includes guidance throughout the process, covering:​

  • ​Strategies for organizing and managing the process

  • Course selection discussion and guidance

  • Standardized testing guidance

  • Major and career assessment

  • Extra-curricular activities guidance and resume preparation

  • Identification of a balanced list of colleges

Hourly Consultations: 12th Grade Students

Hourly consultations are available to seniors on a limited basis. Consultations are intended for students who do not require help with the entire college search and application process, but may need assistance with particular parts of the process (e.g. college list suggestions, activities/summer plans, essay brainstorming, resume review, application questions and review, interview preparation, etc.).

Essay Review and Editing: 12th Grade Students

Applications essays are among the most important parts of college applications, and with good reason, it’s your opportunity to show admissions officers why you should be admitted. Don’t leave it to chance.


As former admissions officers and counselors, we have read and evaluated tens of thousands of college essays and can help you craft an essay that gets noticed and helps to improve your chances as a candidate. 

We'll review your essay and provide detailed feedback, including:

  • what an admissions officer will think after reading your essay

  • content enhancements and actionable steps to make your content more compelling

  • an outline to guide your revision

  • sentence level edits to improve style and flow

We know that turnaround time is important and guarantee your essay will be returned in 3-4 days.
